We have developed an R package for the analysis of Illumina BeadArray data. The package is able to analyse data from both SAM (arrays arranged in 96-well plates) or BeadChip (6 / 8 samples on a chip) technologies. Data can be read into the package as bead summary data pre-processed by the Illumina BeadStudio software. Alternatively, full bead-level data can be read using TIFF images and positional information about each bead on an array.

The latest version of the package can be downloaded from Bioconductor.

If you are looking for the file, which is mentioned in the BeadSummary vignette, this can be downloaded here
